Spokane Police arrested two people they believe were involved in a shooting Sunday night, in Spokane’s Nevada-Lidgerwood neighborhood. Both the suspects have extensive criminal pasts, according to court documents.

Trimarca D. Cooper and Melana E. Glover were charged with assault, reckless endangerment, and unlawful possession of a firearm. They are both convicted felons.

A witness told police she heard people fighting at a duplex, on the 1200 block of E. Sanson Avenue. She said she saw a woman, later identified as Glover, pull out a firearm and shoot at a vehicle.

The people around the car rushed to get inside it. As they were trying to get away, police believe Cooper fired at the vehicle, too.

Cooper told police he “didn’t hear any gunshots” but there were people arguing. Authorties noted in documents that he was “elusive and taking pauses to answer questions.”

Police found two different kinds of bullet casings in the area. They did not find a firearm on Cooper or Glover, but SPD said there was ammunition in Cooper’s pocket.

Cooper had at least four felony convictions, according to police, including felony drug distribution and three other felony drug convictions. Glover had six felony convictions in Washington that date back to 2006. Those convictions mean that Cooper and Glover should not have been able to have firearms.

Spokane Police don’t believe anyone was injured in the shooting.

The two suspects will appear in court Monday afternoon.
